The deterioration of service on the N-Judah since the startup of the T-Third is at its most dramatic during the PM commute. This random glimpse via NextMuni speaks volumes about the state of things on the line:
Supposedly, trains are being re-designated at Embarcadero to even out service, but, at about 6:00 p.m. Thursday, after waiting 13 minutes for an outbound N at Van Ness, only to be passed by a crush-loaded N (and a slew of half-empty M-Ocean Views), and to be informed by the helpful folks at 311 that the next N would be in, uh, 26 minutes (and obviously crush-loaded too, after that long a gap) I gave up and took a cab.
And on days when there’s a game at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T/its-heirs-and-successors Park, well, just forget it.
Is Metro service just as bad on the other lines? What’s your experience? This can’t be unique to the N, can it?
